In light of hearing that there will be no Drama-specific graduation ceremony going forward, the undergraduate students signing this petition request to immediately reverse this decision. On top of a year that has had its severe lows in terms of class quality, adaptability, and student-staff communication, this decision is an extremely upsetting way to cap it off. We believe that the student body at Drama, while small in numbers, deserves to preserve its community and its specific celebrations regarding academic achievement. While we understand the efforts to build the CoPA community as more of a whole going forward, we believe that the streamlining should remain in collaboration/crossover efforts for academic enrichment rather than leaving behind beloved facets of our own unique program. Our community holds a lot of meaning to us, and we already struggle with lack of space within the CoPA building, among other concerns. We entered this program to be based in the School of Drama, and while we can appreciate and explore the other offerings of The New School in ways that are technically possible, we would like to preserve events and milestones such as these that celebrate & keep us grounded in our community.
